Any “dealer” manufacturing, distributing, producing, shipping, transporting, importing or possessing any CDS without affixing the appropriate stamp, upon conviction, is guilty of a felony punishable by imprisonment in the Department of Corrections for not more than five years or by the imposition of a fine of not more than $10,000.00, or by both such imprisonment and fine. Of course, nobody will have a tax stamp, so simple possession of a certain amount of drugs can violate this statute in addition to the one that the voters changed (63 OS § 2‑402).
Since nobody is going to attempt to get a tax stamp on an illegal drug, anyone in possession of an illegal controlled dangerous substance in the above amounts can be found guilty of violating the Controlled Dangerous Substances Tax Act.
This is their way of circumventing the will of the voters who voted for State Question 780 on November 8, 2016.
